Up North…

TT man new image new 2014

An eclectic effort into blending quality House music with mild Acid Techno at 130 BPM, once again electronic dance music reveals itself as One, these tracks all sit onto each other in an effortless, gracious manner, you hear a groove, you pick up a melody you drop a bass line into the mix, the drumming does never get too serious here, the sonic digital, yet organic, hot magma flows and makes sense for any pleasure seeker individual within such vibrational field.

This is a live un-edited Web Radio Broadcast, first aired on www.afterhoursdjs.org on Saturday July the 14th 2018.

 

The following producers are responsible for the music, in no particular order: 

16 bits lolitas, chymera, dave angel, barry jamieson, dave seaman, ejm project, harvey mckay, electric rescue, jody wisternoff, affkt, guy j, john digweed, edu imbernon, king unique, lank, amorph, mark knight, nathan cable, nic fanciulli, miguel bastida, metro area, paul thomas, pan pot, ramon tapia, robert babicz, sebrok, rulers of the deep, sonic infusion, naval, koljah, main element. future shock, laurent garnier, and many more.

By the way….

Technoterra Soundsystem moves up north soon, the intent that of trying and to get a better view on all matters of concern.

Although none of us ever asked for that we happen to be born, we get a chance to grow up, we  struggle to come to terms with our condition, we try to fit in the cogs of the environment that hosts us.

We tire of being who we are where we are, we can’t stand some of the types that enter our lives,  we sulk, we work hard, we think … we move on, sometimes we return.

Technoterra moves up north and embrace change.

You all be safe, true to yourselves and sound.

ALL Time PUNK & HEAVY classics vol.1

Wow…il risveglio alle bellezze nascoste nella sterminata collezione di vinili del sottoscritto continua, continua grazie a tutta una serie di eventi che stanno spostando il baricentro delle mie azioni su versanti diversi da quelli entro i quali mi sono misurato e ( principalmente ) scontrato negli ultimi tempi.

Ecco allora che si realizza in studio una sequenza tutta chitarroni e pesantemente influenzata da sonorità classiche e care; qui si sentono classici e si ascoltano le parole di band come The Nuns, Adolescents, Nirvana, True Sound Of Liberty, The Zero BoysDag NastyHenry Rollins, Bad Brains, Rikk Agnew, ma anche di mostri sacri quali Cro-Mags, Motörhead, Slayer, charged GBH e Suicidal Tendencies.

Se conosci ” questa roba ” magari non l’avrai sentita da qualche anno, o forse te ne eri dimenticat* … il fatto è che suona ancora da paura, ti fa saltare da matti e ti fa PENSARE.

Trovo i contenuti delle liriche davvero coinvolgenti e autenticamente sentiti a livello emotivo da chi li esprimeva in maniera così ruvida e diretta trenta e passa anni fa’.

Non si tratta di nostalgia, mi piace pensare di essere tipo ben ancorato nel momento presente, quel che e’ stato  ( fortunatamente ) non ritorna, che non ci si illuda … chi c’era c’era … e molti di “noi” non ci sono più … scomparsi, smarriti, invischiati dalla vita, imborghesiti, rimbambiti … ma il materiale musicale presentato qui, vi assicuro,  è quanto di meglio ( tenendo conto che il mix in oggetto offre soltanto cinquanta minuti di musica ) l’ondata punk, hardcore, crossover heavy ebbe da produrre tra la fine degli anni settanta a quella degli anni ottanta.

Per il resto, fate voi.

 

A DJ blend constructed by carefully choosing tracks from my huge vinyl collection.
Here you will hear songs by The Nuns, Adolescents, Rikk Agnew, Nirvana, TSOL, Dag Nasty, Henry Rollins, Bad Brains, The Zero Boys as well as some heavy sacred monsters such as Cro-Mags, Motörhead, Slayer, charged GBH and Suicidal Tendencies.

These are all records that made me and a score of others “move” back in the day. Novelty is…they still do!!

WitchTEK 2017 ( South Central region -ITA ) F.R.E.E. party

This is an edited version of the live mix played at the Sulmona’s FREE tek event held at the end of October 2017.

Party was extremely well attended and run without major hiccups.

There is a large movement of sound systems in Italy which are networking towards setting up parties in a free manner, empty warehouses get occupied temporarily, pieces of land in the countryside grabbed and made into citadels of illegality for a night or two.

Unfortunately there’s a lot of prejudice around this type of direct action originated, self made social events; newscasters tend to demonise such practices and to instigate the police so to intervene, to stop proceedings and to confiscate equipment.

Normally events such as these end up as intended without causing any harm nor damages to anyone, other times due to police action and/or gang infiltrations we may witness some very despicable occurrences which they all but reinforce the bad notoriety surrounding the free tekno scene in this country.

end of party

Sun is shining! Time to deal with our tired souls and with a more contingent kind of need: disassembling tons of equipment and it made it back home safely. Cool innit??

On a more personal level, what I enjoy the most in this kind of things is the fact that no money change hands in order for ALL to participate and to have fun, free music for all…thats what i like the most.

Also, the grade of determination with which everyone involved into organising these parties manage to resolve the most difficult, intricate situations acts as a potent impulse into investing, in a major renewed way, in terms of energy and in terms of reciprocal trust/respect, into creating reliable relations, into the desire of meeting new people, into the act of growing to a more informed, competent persons so as to continue in setting up pace towards my own goals , both on the creative, the ethical and on the political spectrum too.

Long live FREE TEKNO PARTIES then … as … LOVE being the sole message ❤

there’s always a lot of work that need doing the whole time: finding a suitable location, securing the location, organising the Bar, making everything to work finely on the technical side, mounting/un-mounting equipment, playing your DJ set/live P.A., managing NOT to get arrested!!! but hey…you know what? IT  DOES always WORTH MY WHILE!

 

a definition of DUB by Royston Blake

Leonardo's Vitruvian

This is a DJ set by Royston Blake a.k.a. Technoterra which presents a music genre loved by many : DUB.

This particular type of sound grew out of the much more popular REGGAE in the sixties, although same is considered a sub-genre DUB music has developed narratives and sound qualities which extend beyond the scope of reggae.

The DUB sound consists predominantly of instrumental versions of other, better known, tracks and is obtained by a significant manipulation of those recordings, likewise vocals get a reshaping and downsizing treatment, components such as drums and bass pattern get emphasised other sound structures get dynamically changed through effects such as echo, reverb , panoramic delay, and other types of synthetic manipulations.

DUB is today considered a form of popular electronic music and many DJ’s worldwide contribute to it further consolidating as a successful source for their dance oriented, bass driven sequences.
